WELCOME HOME EMILY, JACK, JACOB, AND ALI!

Pentecost brought a special cause for rejoicing this year as the self-named Fab Four–Emily Letchworth, Jack Bauer, Jacob Damsgaard-Rodriguez, and Ali Cleary–were confirmed as members of KUCC.  After years as buddies in LOGOS and through their intensive Faith Formation class experience, they affirmed their faith and took their place as young adults in our congregation.  We are thrilled to welcome them and Pastor Betsy back from their transformational trip Los Angeles where they learned much about our nation and God’s world and served those in need.  We heard about their experiences as they led worship on August 13.  Click here to listen to their message..
